Hello my name is Mary from Ghana in West Africa. I obtained a Bsc in Nursing from the University of Ghana. As part of my training in Ghana, I worked on general and specialist wards. I also worked as a nursing officer on a surgical unit at the main Korle-bu Teaching Hospital. I completed a MPhil in Health Promotion at the University of Bergen in Norway which provided me with both qualitative and quantitative research skills. As part of my research, I had to analyse a large data set using SPSS. My MPhil thesis was on Social determinants and immunisation which was supervised by Professor Torill Bull. I have also worked as an Associate Practioner on a surgical ward for a large NHS Trust in Kent, where improving patient experience and safety are key values. I joined BUDI in 2015 and I am researching on Improving short term management of patients with dementia admitted to hospital. I am hoping to learn how to swim in Bournemouth but I will be doing that in a swimming pool, the sea is just too cold for me!.
I am researching on Improving short term management of patients with dementia admitted to hospital. My supervisors are: Dr. Samuel Nyman, Dr. Fiona Kelly and Professor Michael Vassallo.
